Turn Your Smartphone Into A Microscope

Turn Your Smartphone Into A Microscope



The build here uses some plexiglass, bolts, nuts, a focus lens and a laser pointer. The actual macro photography comes from using a cheap lens from a laser pointer, and the rest of the build is for the stand so you can actually take steady pictures.

The magnification you get is pretty surprising, so head over to Instructables for a bunch of sample photos and the full guide.
